For several weeks, the leftist media and establishment politicians have joined forces to try to take down GOP front-runner Donald Trump with coordinated attacks against his character. However, huge news regarding the presidential candidate changes everything we thought we knew.
Many pundits on both sides of the aisle have speculated that Trump would hit a “ceiling” when it comes to his popularity in the country, and that he’d never be able to get over a 50 percent favorability rating. Well, those pundits were wrong. Very wrong.
The latest polling from YouGov shows for the first time that Trump has the majority of GOP voters on his side, which suggests, as I have speculated for some time, that the more he’s attacked, the more people believe he’s the right candidate for the job.
Check it out:
The week’s Economist/YouGov Poll finds Trump still at the top of GOP voters’ preference with a wider lead, while Florida Senator Marco Rubio seems most damaged by the two weeks of attacks and counter-attacks.
This is the first time Trump has garnered the support of a majority of Republican primary voters nationwide. YouGov’s February 24-27 survey marked his previous high, at 44% support.
More surprising is Donald Trump’s favorability rating. Despite constant attacks by FOX News, the GOP establishment and liberal media Donald Trump has a higher rating than the other GOP candidates.
Keep in mind that Trump has been under constant, and vicious, attack by the mainstream media and even conservative outlets like Fox News. Yet his popularity continues to soar higher than ever.
Granted, this particular poll was done prior to the mob of violent leftists shutting down a planned rally at a university in Chicago; however, as we’ve seen in the past, the harder the left and establishment push against The Donald, the more popular he becomes. So if we go off of past instances, Chicago should all but guarantee Trump huge wins in today’s primaries in North Carolina, Illinois, Florida, Ohio, and Missouri as voters turn out to reject the establishment attacks against the billionaire.
